We have not compromised on the quality of education– Education Ministry replies Mahama

Source The Ghana Report

The Ministry of Education has called out the former President, John Dramani Mahama, for his recent comments regarding the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

During Mr Mahama’s visit to the Mfantseman Constituency as part of his ‘Building Ghana Tour’ in the Central Region, the former President alleged that some invigilators aided students in answering questions instead of ensuring candidates did independent work.

Reacting to the allegation, the Ministry of Education stated that the disparaging comments were a calculated attempt to downplay the great strides made by the ministry in improving learning outcomes in the country.

The ministry highlighted the remarkable progress in WASSCE results, citing a substantial improvement from a 28.7 per cent score (A1-C6) in Integrated Science in 2015 to an impressive 66.80 per cent achieved by 2023 WASSCE candidates under President Nana Akufo-Addo.

“We have made monumental progress, and over the past few years, WAEC has instituted several measures to curb exam malpractices during the BECE and WASSCE test administration,” the ministry asserted. They emphasized the strict supervision measures implemented by WAEC in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service, ensuring the integrity of the examinations,” the ministry stated in a press release.

The ministry further called on all well-meaning Ghanaians to condemn the former President’s statement while pledging its commitment to upholding the highest quality of education in the country.

“The Ministry of Education wishes to assure our students, parents, guardians, and the general public that the quality of education and examinations at all levels, including the WASSCE, was not and will not be compromised,” the statement concluded.
